41 H376 And, behold, all the men H3478 of Israel H935 [H8802] came H4428 to the king, H559 [H8799] and said H4428 to him, H251 Why have our brethren H376 the men H3063 of Judah H1589 [H8804] stolen thee away, H5674 [H8686] and have brought H4428 the king, H1004 and his household, H1732 and all David's H582 men H3383 with him, over Jordan?
42 H376 And all the men H3063 of Judah H6030 [H8799] answered H376 the men H3478 of Israel, H4428 Because the king H7138 is near of kin H2734 [H8804] to us: why then are ye angry H1697 for this matter? H398 [H8804] have we eaten H398 [H8800] at all H4428 at the king's H5375 [H8765] cost? or hath he given H5379 us any gift?
43 H376 And the men H3478 of Israel H6030 [H8799] answered H376 the men H3063 of Judah, H559 [H8799] and said, H6235 We have ten H3027 parts H4428 in the king, H589 and we H1732 have also more right in David H7043 [H8689] than ye: why then did ye despise H1697 us, that our advice H7223 should not be first H7725 [H8687] had in bringing back H4428 our king? H1697 And the words H376 of the men H3063 of Judah H7185 [H8799] were fiercer H1697 than the words H376 of the men H3478 of Israel.
